Back to School

It has been way too long since my last blog, but with school year, I vow to do more blogging.  I feel very settled and I am so thankful to be back to work full time.

That being said, I am going to make a few changes around here.  When I initially started my blog, I was working in a district where people had been written up for things they said on their blog.  As a result, I created a pseudonym for my blog name.  I've hated using it, because it felt fake (which it was). Anyway...from here on out, I will be signing off as myself.  

I will also be posting about things in and around my school.  I feel that there are some really wonderful things going on that people should be aware of.  So in the future, you might be seeing things about more than just my classroom.  



  1. Are you still across the pond? What kind of school/job/program are you now working in? Just curious. Glad your life is going well, and I am looking forward to reading more of your posts.

  2. Jannike,
    I am still in England, teaching at a very small international school. I am still working with mainstreamed ASD students, but I am now also the special needs coordinator for grades 1-9. Our school is using the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) at the lower grades. In middle school, we are using the Middle Years Program(MYP). This year, we will begin the process with the International Baccalaureate (IB) so by the time our 9th graders are ready to graduate we are IB accredited.
    Thanks for following my blog! Hopefully I will post some really useful stuff for you this year!
